News from NGN: Data Center core cutover postponed

July 26, 2018
NGN What's New Graphic

The Next Generation Network (NGN) Data Center core cutover originally planned for this Sunday, July 29, has been postponed.

The NGN project is committed to delivering quality and reliability. A network-related outage on Monday, July 23 in the Data Center highlighted vendor and equipment-related issues that need to be investigated and resolved prior to conducting the Data Center core cutover. Therefore, the work will be delayed.

A new cutover date will be identified and shared as the team works to resolve any outstanding changes and questions with the Data Center and network equipment. This delay will also impact the schedule for the customer cutovers. We will share more details with Data Center customers as we resolve the issues. If you have any questions, please contact the NGN team at ngn@umn.edu
